The overall health of your teeth and gums depends a lot on your at-home oral care routine, but it is still essential for you to visit your Dental Care of Texas office at least twice per year, even if you regularly brush and floss. If you have problems such as gum disease or tooth decay, you may need to visit our office more frequently.
Your checkups are the foundation of your professional oral care. During these appointments, your dentist will examine the health of your teeth and gums and may make recommendations for your at-home cleaning routine. These are some of the services available at a standard visit to Dental Care of Texas:
- Professional cleaning - These twice-a-year cleanings take place at the time of your checkup. Your hygienist will use specialized tools to reach the grooves between the teeth that you cannot reach with brushing and flossing. Your teeth will also be polished. If necessary, a fluoride treatment is applied to strengthen the tooth enamel and prevent cavities.
- Exams - During your visit, your dentist will look for of decay on the surface of the teeth and check your gum pockets to assess whether any degree of gum disease is present.
- X-rays - Images may be taken to look at the roots of the teeth and jawbone. X-rays typically reveal any damage that has taken place beneath the surface of the gums and wisdom teeth that may need extraction before they emerge.
- Oral cancer screening - Finally, the dentist will look at the soft tissues of the mouth to identify any lesions that could indicate oral cancer.

Keeping your smile natural and beautiful is our number one priority. Our doctors have taken many hours of continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry in order to provide you with the most up-to-date treatment. Working together, our dental, orthodontic and surgical specialty teams create customized plans to fit your needs. As part of our Total Patient Care approach, we offer a complete range of restorative services, including:
We utilize tooth-colored composite resin to fill cavities without compromising your all-white smile. In the past, dark amalgam was the preferred filling material because of its strength, even though it contained trace amounts of hazardous mercury. Modern innovations have resulted in a strong, lasting composite resin that is free from heavy metals.
CROWNS, ONLAYS & INLAYS
Dental crowns, onlays and inlays can restore the strength, function and appearance of teeth that have been compromised by extensive decay or damage. All-white restorations will maintain a dazzling smile while ensuring that you attain optimal oral health. We may suggest a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown in areas of the mouth that incur great pressure, but these, too, appear tooth-colored.
DENTURES & PARTIAL DENTURES
Missing teeth can make you appear older than your years, reduce your self-esteem, and affect your diet and speech. At Dental Care of Texas, we offer natural-looking full and partial dentures that feel fabulous.
LOCKED-IN DENTURES (WITH MINI-IMPLANTS)
For a secure and snug fit, consider mini-implants. These small posts anchor into the jawbone to create a solid foundation for dentures. We can place mini-implants in a single visit, which means that you'll enjoy the benefits immediately.
CROWN & BRIDGEWORK
Replace one or more missing teeth with crown and bridgework for a full, bright smile that you can be proud of. A bridge is one (or more) prosthetic teeth that anchor to two crowns on either side of the space it fills. Bridges are custom made in a dental lab to blend with your natural teeth in shape and color.
A root canal, also known as endodontic therapy, replaces damaged nerve/pulp in a tooth's canal with a man-made substance. If a dentist indicates that you need a root canal, the only other option is usually to extract the tooth. Keeping your natural tooth intact is the best choice for your smile because your teeth fit together like a puzzle. Removing or replacing a tooth could cause your bite to become misaligned. Modern root canal procedures, combined with advances in anesthesia like oral sedation, make the process more comfortable than ever.
To achieve a smile like nature intended, replace missing teeth with secure and reliable dental implants. If you have sufficient bone tissue and good oral health, dental implants can replace your missing teeth and give you a smile so strong that you'll be back to eating steak, apples, and corn on the cob in no time! First, we place small titanium posts into the sockets left by missing teeth. Titanium is biocompatible (accepted by the body), so bone tissue grows around the post to form a solid prosthetic tooth root. Then, we fabricate and attach lifelike crowns to the dental implants, resulting in a smile that looks and feels completely natural.
Please note, every patient’s case is different; your dentist will discuss all options suitable to your needs at your dental appointment.
